Couple of days after my birthday in 2013, I happened to read an article about Femen on the economist while stuck at a traffic jam , driving to work reading the article , I had a tons of questions how did they come up with their signature innovation what do they have to do with women rights most importantly for all the noise what has Femen achieved This book was the answer to all these questions my friend handed me this book with a line , not many would appreciate what Femen stands for It s a revolution that most of us turn away from This book is a balanced look at a controversial sociopolitical movement, the origins rise of Femen by Jeffery Tayler. It s a short book, but then the history of radical feminist group FEMEN isn t that long I ve been following the grop for a while, at least since the imprisonment of Pussy Riot and Inna Shevchencko s sawing down of the cross in Kiev I think the grop is so often and intentionally misinterpreted Theirs is a political battle, and they are in truth and as of now non violent, though they are than willing to be confrontational and defend themselves if necessary.Often, the violence inflicted on these women is jarring and the author, Jeffrey Taylor, delivers the details in a terse, understated journalistic style that only heightens the effect Far from being a joke or a flash in the pan, I see FEMEN as an important movement, experimenting at the extreme end of the scale The women may be misguided at times and their targeting systems seem to fail at times, but they are brave, committed and calling attention to real outrages being committed against women throughout the world. Fascinating, enlightening A punch in the face of the politically correct , Western progressivism , antiquated feminists of the 1970s, Islam apologetics, not to mention all you male chauvinist pricks out there..DON T read it if you are concerned about live by the rules of civil discourse I WISH FEMEN UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS IN THEIR REFRESHING AGENDA FOR WOMEN S EQUALITY I HOPE THEIR MOVEMENT SPREADS LIKE A BEAUTIFUL HEALING BACTERIA, TO EVERY CORNER OF THIS INEQUITABLE EARTH Interesting insight into the lives of the Femen women, an activist group with aims of targeting the patriarchy and its pillars of dictatorship, religion and the sex industryand focusing on womens rights Very enlightening highlighting the groups actions and how they go about training and planning for there protests however within Femen itself the book portrays anything but an equal feminist movement internally Leaves you with many thoughts and questions as to what next for the movement. Good insider view of this radical women s group. Het verhaal over Femen, de meest succesvolle, of althans meest in het oog springende actiegroep van deze eeuw Tayler beschrijft met een vlotte pen de opkomst van de groep, de spectaculaire acties en hoe Femen van een Oekra ense protestgroep uitgroeide tot een internationale organisatie.Wat het boek een beetje mist, is precies hetzelfde als wat de groep zelf ontbeert, een ideologisch kader Het doel is de aanval op de symbolen van vrouwen onderdrukking, meer hebben ze niet nodig Er staan wel interessante observaties in, zoals de regel dat hoe banger men is voor vrouwelijk bloot, hoe dictatorialer het land is.Tayler staat niet erg kritisch ten opzichte van Femen, hij bewondert terecht hun enorme moed Het gerucht dat de actiegroep een speeltje van een kerel is, dat gretig werd opgepakt door Westerse media, wordt door hem weerlegd.Topless Jihad is een goede introductie in een beweging die nog maar net geboren is en die door velen niet begrepen of verkeerd ingeschat wordt De vraag rijst automatisch of ze een omwenteling teweeg gaat brengen Het boekje maakt je daar optimistischer over dan de reguliere verhalen in de media.
